Say Goodbye to Ageism and Hello to Your New Idols
From jaw-dropping pole acrobatics, to quick-witted comedy and artists who were dancing since before you were born, BroadMinded: Women Over 40 Revue defies messages encouraging women to claim a 29th birthday forever. The show launched to national acclaim (Vice, Huffington Post), proving the talent of women is truly timeless.
BroadMinded was founded by hoop artist and theater-maker Revolva, who devised the project as a way to honor her transition into her 40s. When women are told our highest value lies in our appearance, and by association, our youth, the years beyond 40 are supposed to be a slip into irrelevance. Fortunately, BroadMinded has no time to pay attention to ageism/sexism because we're too busy being badass at skills decades in the making.
